Flakes is a flexible granular sampler designed specially to transform and renovate existing samples into something new and fresh. It was mainly designed to work with voices and atmospheric material, but thanks to its wide sound sculpting possibilities you can come up with interesting results using any kind of sources. This instrument combines manual interaction and pre-made sequenced style of work, so for example you can scan thru the wave using your controller and play some notes on your keyboard while the scenes are controlled by prepared sequence. Moreover it's really CPU light so feel free to rock live on a stage.
Four colours represent four so called "scenes". Each scene has its own settings for different sampler's parameters. For each parameter there is its own cell, these cells have 8 sliders, 4 sliders for the first (main) parameter and 4 for the second (usually it is jitter) respectively. Scenes order and readout process is controlled by the special sequencer. Sequencer's velocity can be routed to control the sampler's volume and release time.
Use hints. Keep clock running.
Enjoy, yours truly,
